Avera Marshall is in the process of building a new cancer institute in Marshall, MN, and is searching for appropriate artwork for the facility in prominent locations in the public lobby, chapel, waiting areas, and corridors. The facility is scheduled to open approximately December 2014.
Avera Marshall is open to all different artistic mediums; two-dimensional as well as three dimensional; teams of artists; photography; and outside sculpture. Given the effect that artwork can have on patients being served in this facility, the artwork should be realistic in design, evoking emotions of peace, comfort, hope and dignity. Specific themes identified by the Art Committee include Southwest Minnesota landscapes, heritage, healing, love, compassion, security, and hospitality.
A one-page, written statement of intent is due on or before February 11, 2014 and proposals are due March 14, 2014. An informational session for interested artists will be held on Tuesday, February 11 from 5:00 – 7:00 pm in the Avera Marshall Cafeteria. A complete RFP is available here: RFP for Art ACI Marshall 2014.
